Beauty and the beast review (SPOILERS)

Before I start rambling about the movie please only read that if you watched the movie already. I really don’t want to destroy your cinema experience, xx. 

Where should I start! First of all I absolutely loved the movie!!! I laughed so much and I cried a few times! As you know I was so excited to finally see the film. I did a ‘Beauty and the Beast’ countdown week because I needed something where I could put all of my excitement into and you all loved it so so much so thank you so much for that! I never thought so many of you would love it and it made me so happy and I felt really touched.

I went to cinema with my mum and my sister. My sister and I watched the movie nearly everyday when we were little so of course we had to watch it together. 

We also made such an effort to look good. I know it doesn’t matter and it is dark in the cinema, but we felt like we have to look the best because it was such an important day to us.

Our loved cinema got a little update and we saw it for the first time. It was so so magical to see just new seats and a new curtain. This probably sounds so stupid but it was really exciting to us. 

I watched the movie in german. I’ve never watched the english version of the film just because English isn’t my first language and I wouldn’t have understood a word when I was 5 years old. So I didn’t hear ‘Emma’, ‘Dan’, ‘Josh’, ‘Luke’ and all the other amazing actors sing and speak. But I definitely want to see it in English to hear all the real voices and because the synchronisation wasn’t the best…. . When ‘Belle’ sang you could really see that the words didn’t fit to her mouth movement. 

The film started and my heart nearly exploded because of all the excitement I carried with me. I watched the movie in dolby atmos, all around sound, which was so cool. It really felt like everything was happening right next to you. 

I loved the start of the movie. I loved seeing a first look of the price before he becomes a beast. And the witch gave me goosebumps! Then Emma appeared on the big screen and my heart exploded! First of all she is probably the most gorgeous actress I know! Seeing her as Belle nearly made me cry. I was so happy. I love the song ‘Belle’ so much and it was so cool to see it with Emma performing.

The village looked incredible! Better than I imagined it. How cool would it be to live there or just spent a day there. 

I also loved ‘Belle’s outfit! I loved that she has bags attached to her dress because she always carries a book with her. Her trousers were so pretty too! The whole outfit was so pretty but really practical. I loved that so much! 

Then ‘Gaston’ appeared. When I was little I hated him so much! I thought he was so ugly and didn’t understand why anybody would marry him. This time it was really hard to think like that because I love ‘Luke Evans’ and he looked so good as ‘Gaston’. I really really liked his performance and yes, now I really enjoy ‘Gaston’ and kind of like him. He was so funny to watch and ‘Josh Gad’ was incredible as ‘Maurice’. 

The song ‘Gaston’ is one of my favorites. I loved seeing them dancing on the tables. It was just so so cool! 

The first new song which they added to the film, ‘How can a moment last forever’, is such a cute and lovely song. I loved all of the new songs. Especially ‘Evermore’ is now one of my favorites. I can’t stop listening to the soundtrack.

But not only the new songs were incredible. I really liked that they mentioned the snow in June. I loved that everytime a petal fell the castle got destroyed a little bit more. That added a lot more suspension to it and really underlined how less time they had left. Belle and beast also go to Paris together and Belle sees her first home and finds out what happened to her mother. I really liked that they explained a lot more. I also loved that Belle tried to escape. I think that underlined her personality so much more. It was so cool that Belle was the inventor and not her dad. I loved that she invented a washing machine so that she had more time to read. I also loved that she teaches other girls how to read and I really liked that the village people destroyed her washing machine. This really showed how different Belle is and Belle doesn’t stop. She says what she thinks. I think this is such an important message. It also was really nice that they explained why all the people still love the beast and that they added something to his story and showed why he became like that. 

Now I have to speak about the dancing scene because I started crying when they danced together. It was so so beautiful to watch! The dress is gorgeous! So beautiful! It really is one of my favorite scenes to watch! 

The other scene which made me cry so much was the scene when Gaston tries to kill the beast. Yes, I know how the story ends, but I cried so much because it was just so emotional! I loved that the witch game back to the castle and canceled the spell. When I was little my sister and I always preferred the look of the beast. We always were so disappointed when the beast turned back into a prince because we liked him so much more as the beast. But Dan Stevens looks incredible so this time I actually liked the change from beast into a prince. Although the beast looked really cool. My sister and mum still prefer the beast.

And the end scene made me nearly cry again just because the movie ended and I didn’t want to leave the cinema ever again.

All in all I loved loved loved the movie! 5 stars!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I am so happy my mum and my sister went to cinema with me. The performance of all the actors were incredible! The animation of all the objects were mind-blowing. Especially the ‘Be our guest’ scene was so cool to watch! 

I highly recommend watching the movie. It is really cheesy but so hearttouching and just the best story ever. 

I loved everything except for the synchronisation but that’s totally not their fault so I have nothing to say against the movie, of course not! 

Thank you again for joining me during my beauty and the beast week! 

Let me know if you liked the movie and what you liked the best.

Until the last petal falls 

“The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his twenty-first year.  If he could learn to love another, and earn their love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time”  – Narrator 



Today I want to share a baking post with you! Can you guess what it is? 

I am baking some cookies inspired by the quote ‘by the time the last petal fell’. 

If you want to check out the recipe which I used for my cookies please head over here. The recipe is so easy to do.

First of all I baked the cookies and let them cool down.

I wanted to create my own icing but it was too runny and I didn’t have enough food dye left to create green and red icing for the rose. So I bought some finished one. Way easier and less stressful. 😀 

I think the pictures describe the following steps the best and I have a lot of pictures to share ;).

I am so happy with this! 

Tadaaa! I am so happy with these! 

After I finished decorating them I put them into this cute little jar.

The jar is from ikea

And I took my trusty gold window paint and painted some cute little designs. 

Now I waited for the paint to dry. 

After that I peeled of the gold designs and placed them onto the jar. 

I am so happy with my cookies! Let me know what you think of them in the comments. And let me know if you liked the movie! 

Tassilo – DIY 

Today I show you how to turn a simple mug into ‘Tassilo’. I just found out that ‘Tassilo’ is named ‘Chip’ in the english version of beauty and the beast. That’s so cool! 

But now let’s start with the DIY.

For this DIY I used gold window paint and a black marker. 

For a final touch I painted the edges in gold.

And Tadaaa!!
How cute is this little ‘Chip-Tassilo mug?!  I love love love it!!! This is probably one of my favorite DIY’s ever!

Let me know what you think of it in the comments. 

Get the look – Emma Watson 

I love ‘Get the look’ blog posts! They are so much fun to do. I love going through all of my clothes and find some similar pieces. So of course I had to do one for Emma Watson since it is ‘beauty and the beast’ week. I am so excited for the movie! Emma is just so beautiful in every way ! It was so much fun to recreate these outfits. 

The looks I recreated are a bit older, but I just love them so much. 

I want to start with this lovely dress.

I was so shocked when I realised that I nearly have the exact same dress as her. I bought it last year in spring and sadly didn’t get around to wear it. I am definitely going to do that this year as it is so beautiful. 

New look

I paired the dress with these sandals. 

Urban Outfitters

Love this look!

The next look is a more casual one.

I don’t own a white blouse (shocking I know!) So I went for a different shirt option. 

For jacket I went for this black one from bench. It isn’t as long as her jacket but I don’t own a long black jacket so this was the best thing I could find in my closet.

Bench

The next look is this one:

I love this casual look! I mean Emma looks beautiful in everything. 

I bought this pullover last year in winter. 

Pullover is from New look

The last look I recreated is this one:

This is one of my favorite outfits! I love the burgundy shorts. 

Although I don’t own some shorts like this I found a perfect alternative.

I got the skirt two years ago and I am still so obsessed with it! 

Mango

I hope you liked my ‘Get the look’ post. Let me know which outfit you liked the best in the comments.
